  • Pretty funny. And think of the implications! New Jersey towns turn property taxes into “charitable contributions” to scoff at the new tax law.
  • Did you know that Ash Wednesday falls on Valentines Day this year? And Easter shares a date with April Fools Day? (unless, of course, you’re of Orthodox persuasion, in which case your calendar is less odd for a change).
  • O, brave new America, where where the rich get richer and the poor go to jail. (Tip o’ hat to jc2k in comments)
  • Bovard: The latest Bundy trial debacle is yet another reason the feds must be leashed.
  • Yet another occasion for asking the eternal question: Why aren’t Hillary and a number of her close associates in the federal pen?
  • Colorado senator — who was anti-legalization — tells Jeff Sessions he’ll hold up every DoJ nomination until Sessions reverses his sabotage of the legal cannabis industry.
  • Now here’s a shining example for anybody who imagines they’re getting old. She’s still hunting deer days before her 100th birthday — and wonders why anyone’s making a fuss about it. (H/T PT)

    Have you ever watched a Janice Fiamengo video? She’s a Canadian anti-feminist college professor. She accuses feminists of being evil, and insults them, very calmly and politely. Sometimes I have to laugh out loud.

    I thought all taxes were charitable contributions just that you had a gun to your head making sure you gave!

    So New Jersey township governments are trying to help residents avoid paying federal taxes that are based on their local property taxes being outrageous?

    It’s hard to tell the difference between a Canadian and an American.

    The simplest way is to make the preceeding statement to a Canadian.

    I still chuckle at a Canadian lady’s comment one evening while on Caicos: “The States are a wonderful place to shop, but I couldn’t possibly live there.”

    Im really hoping the people will free the Bundy’s in light of all the evidence of gov misconduct.I still dont think the judge is going to dismiss the trial with prejudice as she should.That other judge in Portland on the others that pleaded guilty is a total tool.

    The gov really wanted the Bundys dead.Roy Finicum IS dead and again the gov is caught red handed lying about how he was murdered too.That this wasnt another Waco or Ruby Ridge is only because enough Americans are fed up and stood up,they only murdered one this time,Waco lite.

    Some are paying with their freedom,some with their lives.True 3 percenters for justice.

    And the poster child case for jury nullification.

    This case terrifies the gov because they can see,the police state is being resisted,and the power belongs to we the people,not the feebs.They cannot allow this to happen no matter what,hence the criminal behavior on their part to send a message to us all about who is in charge.

    “So New Jersey township governments are trying to help residents avoid paying federal taxes that are based on their local property taxes being outrageous?”

    I was hoping it would result in state and local governments being pressured to lower their taxes. We’ll see how many places look for loopholes like NJ.

    OK,we got a Bundy mistrial and today charges dismissed.Jan 8 we get judge to determine if dismissed with prejudice and cant be retried.

    The gov spin on why it happened is incredible,every excuse possible being floated.Court did find the actions by the gov was willfull in withholding evidence.
